Came out with the Idea

Reader Mode started as a weekend project and as a means of helping me to get some extra money to pay for my bills and food.

I was looking for a next project to build and then decided to build Chrome extension as it will take a short amount of time to build and can thus validate my idea quickly. So while looking through an idea of what Chrome Extension to build, I realized that I have been having this problem, which is when reading articles on the web, I keep getting annoyed by things like:

  • Popups
  • Ads
  • Clutters
  • Unpleasant colors
  • Bad/Noisy designs
  • Background colors too bright
  • Hard to read fonts
  • Hard to remember what I just read
  • Article is very long to read

I then spent my whole weekend to quickly build a simple MVP of the extension.
